Princes Square Entrance
Princes Square’s elevation is rich and recognisable but demanded a more prominent main entrance to make it legible to the passing footfall on Buchanan Street, and further attract visitors into the retail and leisure and to the newly opened Everyman Cinema.
Our solution is a single jewel-like object that sits proud of the elevation, contrasting with the surrounding foliage façade treatment. This object wraps its way into the entrance corridor ceiling and features a perforated texture abstracted from the original peacock artwork. The backlit pattern creates a different visual experience between night and day reflecting the changing nature of Princes Square through the day and night.
To ensure minimal disruption to the building fabric, our entrance solution is independent from the façade save for key junctions, allowing for easy removal and making good of surfaces at a later date in recognition of the listed Georgian facade.
